You probably have the small brakes up front, so your rims CAN be 14" and up. The offset for the earlier RWD platforms (240/740/760/940 and early 960) is 25mm and the bolt pattern is 5x 108mm.

This means that the easiest is to find wheels from other similar cars. If you're willing to google around and do some measuring, some of the Ford cars (Lincoln, Mercury, Land Rover and the Porsche Boxter from 2002 on) have a similar bolt patterns (5x4.25" or something like that).
If you're in Europe, look at the Peugeot rims.

You can even use more modern Volvo wheels if you're willing to use spacers. The newer rims are from 43mm to 52mm offset, so you will need anywhere from 15mm-27mm spacers to make them fit without rubbing your struts or other stuff.

Be careful with the rim WIDTH too. If they're too wide, even if you have the proper spacer, they might touch the outside of the fenders.

Good luck!

How many do you need? I have three Volvo rims that I took off my 88 Volvo. I had a flat tire and damaged one rim. I replaced all four rims with new generic ones, which was cheaper than buying one volvo rim. Let me know where you are located and see if we can work something out.

Spray starting fluid in the intake manifold with the throat open. Then try to start. if it starts briefly then you have a fuel pump or fuel relay issue. If it does not start after spraying starter fluid then you have a spark issue. Check the ingnition stage module on the inner fender behind the air cleaner and/or swap the radio suppression relay on the radiator fluid reservior.

SOURCE: compressing calipers to put on new brake pads on 1988 volvo 740

There is a tool available from most auto parts supply outlets, it is a plate that has a compression bolt through it, you slide the plate into the caliper, and tighten the bolt against the piston, then keep turning until the piston is all the way in. These are relatively inexpensive and good to have for next time.

hope this helps.

SOURCE: 1988 volvo 740...will start... runs at lowspeed

I have a potential solution, but only if you give good thumbs up though:)
It's the fuel pump relay, located behind the ashtray.
It's the one on the right, of the two.
If you gently twist it l/r, while turning the motor over.
Happy motoring

Gm I would like to replace left front drivers side rim for my 2003 E500 sport Mercedes Benz. No luck on fringing a used rim

Most people selling used wheels, especially from a Merc, will have a whole set for sale. It will be very hard to buy just one good rim to replace what you have. If you are lucky enough to find a used set in good condition, which will be very hard, you will have to buy all 4.

It is not that expensive to purchase a whole set of new aftermarket rims, such as from these companies. There are plenty of aftermarket wheel sets available to fit Mercs. IF you must replace one rim, I were you I would remove what you have and store them and get a new set.

Hi my vr commodore hasbeen lleaking fuel from underneath I replaced all the lines I can see behind the rear wheel but it is still leaking from the top of the tank area can someone plz give me some real...

Hey Craig, Had this same problem on a car , leaking gas bad ! I had to pull the fuel tank . One of the plastic fuel line fitting's on top of the fuel pump module was broke ! Cost $ 400.00 dollars for new fuel pump module ! Cars now a days all plastic ! This car was my brothers , he came to me because I'm the mechanic in the family ! His car was a Chevy Cobalt , GM had a service bulletin on it. Should have had a recall on it ! He did get his money back from GM ! Forgive me for being an American but your car is also a part of GM vehicles ? could be the same problem ! It's not that difficult to pull the tank , Two straps hold it to the under side of the car . You may need to reposition parts of the exhaust system. An if you tank is full of fuel your going to need to pump it out . You can buy electric pumps for not to much money ! Hope this helps an good luck ! you can do it !!!!!!

Your rims are not properply seating on yje hubs.make sure yje center hole on the rim is fitting over the axle hubs. Check for chamfering of the inner edge of the rim hole so the radius on the hubs don't eep the wheel from fully seating.. After market rims are not generic fit. You risk losing a wheel going down the road if fit is not corrected.
